I have been busy going through my 500+ pictures from the last month and working in Photoshop with what little time I have lately. Yep, 500+. That is what happens when you are an amateur photographer and just snap away at anything that inspires you. I took over 150 pictures at the beach/lighthouse in my hometown. I can't remember when I was there last at sunset so I took advantage of the beautiful sky and clicked away.
We also got a good downpour of rain at my parents house and as soon as it stopped I took a walk around the yard snapping away at my mother's gorgeous landscaping. I am always in awe that she takes care of it all herself (with some mowing done on my dad's part).
I am also getting used to utilizing a tripod--as I did with the moon picture. Still need some practice with that and with shooting a night.
So, as I enjoy this last week with my daughter, here are some pictures I weeded out of those 500+.
